Supporting ambitious SMEs to grow profits and realise their potential
Having a part time FD as over qualified as Kate has added considerable value to our business, delivering insight in to our finances that has driven our growth strategy, kept us agile and contributed to over 30% growth last year. She is money very well spent for Mash.

Kate has offered invaluable support over the past year. She has provided an insight in to the business’s finances, mapped out the runway and helped identify the roadmap for the future growth. In establishing project budgets, cashflow models and quarterly reviews we have gained clarity in the business. The financial disciplines implemented have enhanced our credibility and helped securing funding for future projects.

We have been working with Kate for the past year now and we have found her services to be invaluable in helping us take the next steps within our business. Kate has worked with us to develop a business plan, gain clarity in regards to our finances, restructure our workforce and plan for future expansion. With her help we have managed to accelerate our growth and establish ourselves firmly within our specialist sector. She is now part of our team and we look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.

As a financial consultant, Kate was invaluable in reviewing the existing finance function and systems and in getting the structure and processes right. As a result of this we were quickly able to produce improved financial information to better control and manage our business, delivering increased profit and successfully achieving our plan. Through her hard work and insight Kate quickly gained the respect of the management team and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is looking for a senior financial consultant to help improve financial systems, reporting and performance.

Kate has worked with us at reCentre-health for over two years when she managed the company’s finances and acted as Finance Director. She combines detailed financial knowledge and experience with sound strategic judgement. She is a pleasure to work with always making herself available and willing to help wherever she can. Her interpersonal skills are excellent. She is a good communicator with a keen sensitivity for her client’s needs. While she has been working with us the business has thrived which has been substantially due to her advice and guidance. We would be happy to recommend her to anyone considering engaging her.
(Partner, reCentre- health)
As a part-time interim FD for the Kuju group, Kate quickly built a quality finance team to support the business in providing insightful decision making information. In what was a challenging period with operational cash management issues, funding renegotiations, a budget cycle, year end and the launch of a new business channel, her support and contribution to the management team was invaluable.
Kate has been a lifesaver at Born Ready Games. Firstly in quickly grasping and sorting out the issues we faced, thinking through the approach required then setting up the systems. Once the heavy lifting was done Kate was then able to find us the right support for day to day running of our accounts, while always being on hand to advise and guide when needed. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Kate to any SME looking for senior account support.
(CCO of Born Ready Games)
Kate is a versatile, competent and reliable member of the management team and played an integral part in THQ’s growth from £13m to over £100m.
